6 Signs You May Be An Overprotective Parent!

Yesterday, we talked about the effects of being an overprotective parent. We received several comments wanting to know what an overprotective parent looks like, so ๐ก๐ž๐ซ๐ž ๐š๐ซ๐ž ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐Ÿ” ๐ฌ๐ข๐ ๐ง๐ฌ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ฎ ๐ฆ๐š๐ฒ ๐›๐ž ๐š๐ง ๐จ๐ฏ๐ž๐ซ๐ฉ๐ซ๐จ๐ญ๐ž๐œ๐ญ๐ข๐ฏ๐ž ๐ฉ๐š๐ซ๐ž๐ง๐ญ!๐Ÿ‘‡โฃ

Of course we can advise them, but ultimately, we want to encourage our teens to be independent thinkers with their own confident opinions.โฃ

Teens are resilient, only if we give them the opportunity to rebound. Success is great, but teens wonโ€™t truly thrive until they learn to overcome day-to-day failures.โฃ

4๏ธโƒฃ. ๐˜๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ณ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ซ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜บ – Do you warn your teen to watch their fingers every time they shut a cabinet door or gasp when they occasionally trip over their own two feet? As long as a teen isnโ€™t in danger, you should try to bite your tongue from time to time, or the training wheels may never come off.โฃ

Focusing on measurable achievements could be detrimental to your teenโ€™s mental well-being.โฃ

You want your teen to be motivated by their own internal drive!
